This project for Mecca Inc. was to wire a suit of yellow LED lights into a costume designed for the Sylvania ad campaign called Mr. Light.
He would walk around at trade shows all lit up acting like....um....Mr. Light might act.
The suit was made of gold lamey fabric that we wired 150 LED lights into. The head was also covered in the same fabric and had lights all over it as well. The belt held the custom power pack including 20-"9v" batteries held in special pockets sewn into it.

WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED ?
What have we learned?
We can do unusual projects.
We can install 20 batteries on a person and not electrocute or ignite them.
We can include LED lights of all kinds into clothing.
Now we can use programmable micro controllers for logical sequencing of the LEDs.
Now we can increase the density of the lights.
Now we can incorporate the newest LEDs types into our projects.
